Japanese Satoyama
Tama

Satoyama means "the border zone or area between mountain foothills and arable flat land".  This area was renewed about 10 years ago, and now many people visited here to study the japanese traditional old life style done by the people from Edo to early Showa period.  On 12th, Feb. 2011 (a day before my visit), there was a snowfall in the Kanto area, so you can see a snowman in the picture.

More About Tama

Tama area is the name of the western part of Tokyo Metropolis.  It consists of 26 cities, 3 towns and a village.  A lot of people (about 4 milion) live in a eastern half part of the area.  However, there are many mountains in the western part of Tama area, and there are very little flat land.  Many hiking spots are in the western area, so you can enjoy walking on the trail, camping, and so on.  If you see the beautiful mountain scene, you may not believe this is also in Tokyo.
